    When you took your truck in for the rust prevention spray or frame replacement? Any chance they'll give me a new taco to drive around for a few days? ;)

    Had a 2009 Prius for the 3 weeks while the truck was in the shop. I dove it for a week, my avg mpg was around 46. I didnt care for it, too much like driving a video game. I would rather drive my 14 year old 318ti, I may only avg around 34 but it is much nicer to drive. My wife drove the Prius for the other 2 weeks and decided she did not like it, like me not at all engaging to drive. I am thinking of replacing the 318 with a Golf TDI, good mpg and available with a manual trans.

    I'm currently in a 2009 Sienna while I'm waiting for a call from Toyota to negotiate the buy back price on my 97 Taco.

    Got the spray done. Had an 09 Matrix for one day...drove the bastard like it was a racecar and in 30 miles of driving only needed to put in $2.00 of gas to fill it back up to the level I got it at. Despite how fun it was to burn it up, it was nice to get my baby back.

    The free use of the 2010 Corolla was nice, I put 450 miles on it in 3 days.
    But I honestly prefer my 2003
    Hyundai Elantra. [​IMG]

    they gave me a Scion xB, the little square box car. Worst car ever, I'm 6ft and had nowhere to put my left foot. It probably wouldn't be too bad a car for a short person, but I wasn't a fan. I had it for a full month, so I got a pretty good idea of what the car was all about, sorry Scion.

    haha, I wish I had a choice. It's through Enterprise. They had the Accent or a Kia something. I think I'm gonna do some neutral drops.

    I got my truck back today. Thankfully I only had the Accent for 2 days. How long did your all drip that white stuff?

    Oh and they said the rust on my frame was really bad, and on the verge of needing to be replaced. Haha, I don't think that is supposed to make me feel better.

    The fact that your frame is cover for 15 should
    make you feel a little bit better. After I got my
    truck back from the frame replacement, I could
    see some little things they didn't take care of.

    But for me it doesn't matter - I sold my Tacoma
    today :D
